Share your language (Italian or English) and companionship during fortnightly friendly visits to an isolated elderly Italian man living in an aged care facility in Footscray.
A volunteer fluent in Italian or English is requested for this role.
Visits may be spent talking or sharing in a simple leisure activity together. Your regular visits can make a real and positive difference in the life of this resident - reducing social isolation and improving well-being.
We ask volunteers to commit to fortnightly visits for at least 12 months, however this is an ongoing role & we hope to support your friendship for as long as possible.
Volunteers receive training, orientation, ongoing support, travel reimbursement and quarterly invitations to meetings together with other visiting volunteers.
